Another GREAT Ride with Artybolt.....

Arty got one of these motorcycle gps things, plotted some roads for us to take on his computer, transferred them to the gps as routes.

We met up about 10A Saturday. We rode through great back country roads, mostly farm land and cattle. Rode about 2 1/2 hours, stopped for lunch. Then we each headed home.

I couldn't find these roads again except by blind luck. His advance work on the routing made for a great day. We saw loads of other bikes, not surprised based on the great riding conditions there.

I really wish I'd had a bike when I lived in Florida!!
But then again, I was alot younger then and might have rode alot more carefree, and that can be a baaaad thing on some of them Florida roads !!

Sounds like it was a nice ride, Jon. No pics ??

The sad thing is I brought my camera, never took it out of the saddle bag!

I was a great ride Jon and as usual it was great to hook up with you again. The GPS really puts a new dimension on ridding. Anyone who is thinking about it, I recommend it highly. I am plotting my rides for the Virginia mountains on the July 4th weekend and will let you know how it works out. .

Arty, what kind of GPS do ya got? I had thought about one, but was concerned about the vibrations effecting it after awhile.
I have a $300 gift certificate from work for being there 15 years (even though I've probably made them millions of $$'s in that time ) and can only use it for certain things, one of which is a GPS.
It'd certainly make back road riding (which I really enjoy) alot easier!!

I have the Garmin Zumo 450. Motorcycle GPS. Touch screen glove friendly waterproof. A little $$$ but I thought I will have it forever.

That looks like it's just what I'm in the market for
Does it have an output jack for the audio? That way I'd be able to patch it into my communicator

I donít have it hooked up that way but you can. They also make a 550 which is blue tooth.
